    I worked at Menasha Packaging full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Sometimes your task is as simple as making a box.

    Cons

    One 20 minute break for a whole 8 hr shift in the cold. Some days I overhauled trying to get product on the table to keep up with the extra speedy line.

    Advice to Management

    The supervisors make alot of mistakes and they need to be better leaders.

    Pros

    Free t shirts I guess?

    Cons

    Do not care about their employees at all. You get written up for not driving to work at 10 pm when there's a snow storm so bad they close the highways. Smh. They also pay men more than women for the same job and experience. Also u are forced to work every other weekend wether u have vacation planned or not. Won't promote women either. No time for a home life, relationship, kids or even a pet.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management and hr. Have the office people come out and work on the floor for while and see what it's like.

    Pros

    Vacation time, and that's pretty much it.

    Cons

    Everything from the upper management to workers. Lazy management equals lazy employees. This company won't progress unless the Managers and leaders act like actual members of the facility and work and not just depend on others.

    Advice to Management

    Manage the company the right way Menasha!

    I have been working at Menasha Packaging full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent management who excel at enabling employees to take on new challenges. Step in when appropriate but for the most part empower employees to manage their portion of the business independently.
    Great office environment, people enjoy meeting up out of the office and have a genuine interest in each other's lives.
    Excellent design staff and plant support. The company clearly values its customers, and the employees feel able to consistently do what is the best for the customer, even if it stresses our systems. Everyone, from design to the packout center, has a "can do" attitude to complete a job fully and on time.
    Benefits are great (especially 401K Match) and HR is a great information resource.
    Low turnover

    Cons

    Workload can wax and wane.
    Took a long time to get the office fully staffed which led to a lot of discomfort and long hours in the first year.
    Low turnover in company at large means there aren't frequent job postings.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing! People love the office environment & enjoy coming into work every day.
